Our experience and depth of legal knowledge allow us to help clients begin their journeys toward closure by holding the correct parties responsible for their negligence.
Who Can Bring a Wrongful Death Claim?
This is often the first question that needs to be answered when someone has lost his or her life because of the negligence of another. Determining who is legally able to bring the claim to court is a priority. The next question is who may benefit from any compensation secured through the case. These questions become complicated given the effect of divorce and more modern definitions of family.
Act as Soon as Possible to Preserve Evidence and Avoid the Statute of Limitations
There are numerous reasons to begin pursuing the appropriate legal action as soon as possible. One of these is that, as for most claims, there is a statute of limitations which may prevent you from pursuing any legal action if enough time has passed. Of almost equal importance is the fact that as time passes, so does the availability of evidence. If your loved one was lost in an auto accident, the vehicle may have been destroyed. Pertinent medical evidence may not have been gathered.
Acting now can preserve your ability to pursue justice and compensation for your loss.
